Mr. PECK:

Section 4 provides that any

person who sells or offers, exposes or holds in possession for sale in Canada maple sugar or maple syrup not complying with the standards prescribed by this bill shall be deemed to be guilty of a violation of the act. Any small farmer with a few gallons of maple syrup is forbidden to sell it unless it stands the test set out in the bill. How is the small producer going to test his syrup by these standards?

Mr. PECK:

I had not previously had an

opportunity to read through the act, but I notice that in the definitions it is stated that maple syrup may not contain more than 35 per cent of water, and a gallon of maple syrup shall weigh not less than thirteen pounds, two ounces, and shall contain 277-274 cubic inches. Then section 4 says:

Any person who sells or offers, exposes or holds in possession for sale in Canada, or ships or causes to be shipped any maple sugar or maple syrup found to be adulterated or to fail to comply with the provisions of this act or of the regulations thereunder, shall be deemed to be guilty of a violation of this act.

Maple Sugar Industry

If the owner of a sugar bush produces a certain * amount of syrup and it does not contain the exact weight prescribed by this act, he is subject to a penalty of $300. I think that is going a great deal too far, I would like to know whether my understanding of the act is right or wrong.

Mr. PECK:

How are these people going

to tell whether the syrup they produce complies exactly with the provisions of this act or not? How are they going to test their product?
